Some have asked me why I bother to knit when I have so many other things to do. This is the reason why: for the joy of seeing someone you love pull your work out of their pocket and slip it on their hands, around their neck, over their head.
What an elation last week when this little eight year old girl unknowingly wrapped herself in my love for her. Her thought was simply to warm her freezing hands! But I knew that the mitts would someday warm her freezing heart... or mine.
